Primary Referral Process

Referrals to NHPSS

Where a school feels they need support, a referral needs to be made using the North Herts Support Service Referral paperwork. All referral paperwork can be found at the bottom of the page. The referral pack includes a single service request form, GDPR consent form and assessment data sheet. 

The completed North Herts Support Service Referral paperwork then needs to be emailed to supportservices@northhertsesc.herts.sch.uk where the NHPSS Joint Leads will check if the referral meets the High Needs criteria for support. The NHPSS will contact the school to arrange a meeting for support to begin.

Assistance may be given to write PSPs, reports for ENF, CDC, CDAC, EHCPs and CAMHS; NHPSS staff members will attend meetings for the above where appropriate.

NHPSS also offer Positive Behaviour Management Training to whole staff groups, small teams and MSAs. This will support a consistent approach within school.  To access this training please contact us on supportservices@northhertsesc.herts.sch.uk or alternatively speak to Jon Hansford or Robyn McFayden.
